Whether it’s going back to old wars or flying us off into space, the Call of Duty series has definitely mixed it up a lot, but nothing quite tops it more than the inclusion of dragons in Black Ops 3. Yes, dragons. The Descent DLC Zombies experience takes place in Nikolai’s motherland, an alternative history of 1940s Soviet Union. Players will face a swarm of mechanized zombie infantry and aerial dragon assaults within the remnants of Stalingrad.
Activision have also announced the release date for the DLC, which arrives a month early on PlayStation before making its way to Xbox One and PC. Watch the new trailer, and below that, check out some details about the four new maps.
Empire: Treyarch adapts its Black Ops 3 movement system to the Black Ops 2 fan favorite map Raid. The re-imagining of this classic, medium-sized map features an authentic Roman villa that has been “recreated by a modern-day eccentric billionaire,” where a classic map structure mixes with the new gameplay mechanics of Black Ops 3.
Cryogen: Located far off the coast in the Dead Sea, an isolated compound holds some of the world’s most dangerous criminals in frozen isolation. Sentry towers keep watch over the small map’s circular design as frenetic combat is funneled around the prison’s cryogenic tubes, where opportunities for wall running attacks abound.
Berserk: Ancient sentinels from a lost civilization guard the entrance to Berserk, a Viking village frozen in time. Players will fight through blizzards, and control the center bridge as they navigate this medium-sized map’s wooden buildings, deadly rocky outcroppings, and tight chokepoints.
Rumble: Gamers battle amongst larger-than-life mechanized warriors in Rumble, a stadium where giant robots battle to the roar of the crowd. This medium-sized map funnels high-speed combat to the central arena, where players battle their way through fallen mechs and pyrotechnics.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III Descent will launch on July 12th for PS4 users and will cost $15/£10 unless you own the Season Pass.
